Braised Collards & Black-Eyed Peas

This is a common dish to eat for good luck on New Years Day in the South, and something my wife Lisa (who is from Houston), and I often enjoy. We have a friend who was craving it but does not eat pork, so I came up with this recipe that uses spices to create a smoky and satisfying take on this classic. It's vegan, so now anyone can enjoy good luck in the new year.
